Pune is going to become the first Indian city to have a high-speed wireless Internet network. This ambitious project will enable people to access the Internet from anywhere in the city wirelessly through their laptops or personal digital assistance (PDAs).
The project 'Unwiring Pune' is joint venture of global chipmaker, Intel Corporation and Pune Municipal Corporation. Intel, along with Chennai-based Microsense, will establish infrastructure for a wireless communication network covering the entire 280 sq km of this cultural centre of Maharashtra in a couple of years. Intel will provide the design and planning support, while Microsense will carry out the network deployment. Microsense has already established a wireless Internet network at the Airport.
